Lumesa SA

The history of Lumesa SA

Lumesa SA was founded in 1980 with the development of the first series of 6 light drill mast units that decade, conceived for building anchored avalanche shelters. The SIG MOUNTY brand was born. In the following years, these pneumatic drill masts were also used for dams, weirs, tunnels, bridges and historic buildings.

In 1992, the SIG MOUNTY 92H hydraulic drill mast was introduced on the market. In the same year, the company took part for the first time at the Bauma trade fair in Munich, which was the starting point for sales in neighbouring Europe. 30 machines were delivered for reconstruction of the city of Prague.

In 2001, Lumesa SA obtained an ISO certification and an EU certification from the Munich Civil Engineering Association.

In 2018, Lumesa AG was incorporated by Küchler Technik AG. This integration was key to ensure the continuity of the company and to develop and expand its customer base.

Lumesa AG has now been a reliable partner to the civil engineering industry for over 40 years, with Casagrande UK proudly being their UK agent. Development, assembly and service departments are in Lumino (Switzerland) and production has been outsourced to Swiss suppliers, which guarantees high quality and short delivery times.  Drilling machines from Lumesa SIG MOUNTY work on all continents to the full satisfaction of our customers and for the benefit of the population in developing countries.
